Now Here Finland – a design exhibition in Seinäjoki 2010

一個舉辦在芬蘭西部小鎮塞納約基的設計展。小鎮雖小,不到五萬人,設計活力一點也不小,向全國首都以外的設計師徵展作品的結果,就在這裡。

NowHere Finland – a national exhibition was held in Taidehalli, Seinäjoki between 16.1. – 14.2.2010, organised by Pohjanmaan taidetoimikunta.

The exhibition’s purpose is to give designers outside of the capital area opportunities to showcase their designs and network with each other. Therefore, the co-operation partners include many provincial’s art committees, whose main responsibilities are to inform designers in their local areas of the event and to promote networking as well as to enhance public’s understanding on design.

The name of exhibition was interesting. Last year when I got to know about the exhibition, I thought it to be “NoWhere Finland”, a small city in the middle of nowhere? of NowHere Finland, happening right here! Well, it is of course the latter one.

Among 400 applications from all over Finland, 43 works are chosen and exhibited.
